The FES Student Council recently sponsored a canned food drive to benefit a local food bank and a family that recently lost their home to a fire in Freeport.  They wanted to see which holiday character could be the most generous.  Santa, Rudolph, Frosty, The Grinch, Jack Frost, and the Elves participated in the challenge.  Over 650 canned food items were collected.  The Student Council counted the items and found that the Elves were the most generous followed closely by Santa and The Grinch! The Student Council appreciates everyone for their generosity!

Mr. Hughes visited Freeport Schools and ran into Santa at Freeport High School! He asked Santa to "Give all of his students, employees and families a wonderful Holiday Break", and ensure that they can all return to school in January to complete an AWESOME school year!  While he was there he also had a chance to stop by the gym to visit with students!
